How manufacturers use various metals for matrix metal composites

Though it’s not a metal, adding straw into mud to make bricks that don’t crumble easily might represent the first composite material documented in history. Surprisingly, some currently standing mud-composite buildings have lasted for hundreds of years, demonstrating adobe’s clear superiority over mud or straw alone as a building material. Relying on similar principals of…

The Infiltration Process to Create Matrix Metal Composites

Metal Matrix Composites, often shortened to MMC, refer to composite materials formed from at least two parts. The properties of these composites improve the material’s properties to provide benefits for certain applications. Some examples might include very durable components for drill bits or strong, lightweight parts for aerospace and transportation. According to Science Direct, some…

Benefits of Alloying Ag with Copper Alloys

Copper use is numerous and widespread. From electrical wires to copper pipe fittings, industries around the world employ this metal for their operations. Typically, copper is not the sole metal used in applications. Other metals will be alloyed with this material to provide a wide range of properties and characteristics. Silver (Ag) is an element…
